This book teaches developers, designers, programmers, and online marketers what pitfalls to avoid from the beginning so they can provide their clients with more effective site designs.
"Shari Thurow has been consistently one of the best rated speakers at our SearchEngineStrategies.com conferences for her ample advice on how to build web sites that 'naturally' attract traffic from search engines. Now she puts that advice into print, creating a great companion book for anyone involved with constructing web sites. The book teaches you how to create web pages that please search engines and human visitors alike." --Danny Sullivan, Editor, SearchEngineWatch.com"The SEO industry can be a huge pitfall for the uninitiated.
